Neighbourhood Boards

Neighbourhood Boards play a key role in building stronger communities and influencing decisions that affect the local community. Neighbourhood Boards are made up of Councillors and people living or working in the neighbourhood including representatives from community groups, local businesses and public services.

The role of residents on the Neighbourhood Boards is to represent the whole of their neighbourhood, not just a single interest group, with commitment and passion. They have a real understanding and vision about their community’s hopes and priorities and work alongside councillors and public services to give their neighbourhood a strong and powerful voice.

 The role of the community group representatives/ local businesses is to represent the communities they serve and work with. They will have an understanding of local issues and of the issues faced by their community and will have valuable experience and knowledge to support the Board in realising their priorities. 

 The Neighbourhood Managers are as follows
